The trip begins upon your arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu. While you walk outside the airport, you'll see one of our representatives with a Nepal Hiking Team display board. He'll escort you to the hotel where you can rest for the night. Then, we'll take a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara.
Upon reaching, you'll rest for the night and prepare for the hike. We'll hike towards Tikhe Dhunga and to Ghorepani. We'll wake up early the next morning and hike to the Poon Hill viewpoint. At the viewpoint, you'll be rewarded with splendid views of Dhaulagiri, Machapuchare, Hinchuli, Annapurna ranges, Dhampus Peak, and also Dhaulagiri II.
After watching the sunrise at the Poon Hill viewpoint, we'll walk our way to Tadapani, Chhomrong Village, Dovan, and then to Deurali. With this, we reach the ultimate destination too, the Annapurna Base Camp, via Machhapuchhre Base Camp. We'll then descend from ABC to Bamboo, Jhinu Danda, and then take a flight from Pokhara to Kathmandu.
So, you are ready to expand your horizon and plan the Annapurna Base Camp Trek soon. But, you need to consider one factor that can affect your whole trekking experience, i.e., the weather conditions. The Annapurna Base Camp Trek is accessible all year round; however, the best time for the trek is on any date in either March-May or September- November.
Those are the ideal time to embark on the trails of Annapurna. The weather during those times will be suitable for hikes, which will eventually uplift your hiking experience.
We do not recommend hiking during the monsoon and winter seasons. This is because you'll face heavy rainfall and snowfall during your hikes. If you trek during these seasons, there'll be a high chance of injuries and natural calamities. Therefore, to avoid these situations, choosing only the best time for the ABC trek would be best.
Before booking the trip, one question will indeed cross your mind. And that question is, "How difficult is the Annapurna Base Camp Trek." We want to address this question and provide information on the ABC trek's difficulty level.
First of all, you should know that the Annapurna Base Camp is a moderate trek. There are two factors that affect the difficulty level of any trek. Let's break the level into two aspects- Hiking routes and Elevation.
The hiking route you'll embark on during the Annapurna Base Camp Trek has many uphill and downhill terrains. You'll be walking for approximately 5-6 daily with frequent breaks. The terrains are relatively steep and hence can be easily crossed. Therefore, with frequent breaks, and the fantastic scenery, you'll complete the trek easily.
Second of all, let's discuss the Elevation of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The highest elevated ground you'll ascend is 4130m at the Annapurna Base Camp. While hiking at this altitude level, there is less chance of altitude sickness. Moreover, the ABC trek itinerary is designed to give you enough days to acclimate your body to the altitude.
Therefore, you can be assured that the Annapurna Base Camp can be completed by beginner hikers as well.
